If you live in Scott County and take a close look at your property tax statement, you’ll see a special assessment for $10.  Every listing for homes for sale in Scott County will (or should) show that special assessment.  As real estate agents we’re often asked what the $10 assessment is for.

This assessment, called a “household waste fee” on your statement, is to provide the funds necessary to operate the Scott County hazardous waste facility located on Hwy 282 in Jordan, just south of Prior Lake.  This is where you can (and should) dispose of all your hazardous waste such as paint, pesticides, cleaning chemicals, etc.  Items that are dropped off but still in usable condition are available for free at the facility.
